Default Cgm and a1c difference


I have now had three a1c tests since starting to wear the dexcom g6. I check the dexcom regularly and believe it to be quite accurate.

It has predicted the following blood sugar

5/10/2019 - 8/10/2019 137 blood glucose
2/14/2019 - 5/10/2019 134
11/30/2019 - 2/14/2019 135

My a1c tests for each of these was 7.4. Which would compute to estimated glucose of 166. Why the big difference in actual versus a1c?

Thanks for any help.
